This is why I advocate a 100% wealth tax. It should be a crime for a company to give consumers products they want. They're hoarding cash while a govt that provides all the goods and services we need goes broke! A wealth tax will fix this problem right up.

Having Steve Jobs as a dicta... I mean leader would be the end of freedom of speech and expression as we know it.

I would sacrifice my life to make sure that didn't happen.

In Apple's latest earnings report, 62% of their sales were from outside the U.S.

See... that's the problem, our government is dependent entirely upon its' populace but they've been nearly bled dry and the parasite still isn't satisfied.

All of their products are also manufactured outside the US. Once the Kapitalists complete the abandonment of Amerika it will turn into a banana republik whose main exports will be food for 2.5 billion voracious BRICsters.

Bet not... no one is going to want the GMO garbage that only this continent is force fed.

We'll truly have nothing of value to contribute. At some point we're in a world of hurt, when the rest of the world decides to stop going along with the confidence game that is the US dollar... then we won't even be able to continue with our finest export, our debt.
